“I think if I've learned anything about friendship, it's to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don't walk away, don't be distracted, don't be too busy or tired, don't take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.”
― Jon Katz
Receiving a diagnosis of ALS is challenging, frustrating and often times, overwhelming. There's a wealth of information to read, digest, and understand. In addition to a steep learning curve you have to deal with the fears, questions, and mystery of a life changing situation.
We would like you to be a part of our community. We help each other along the ALS journey. If you are newly diagnosed we can answer questions and make your experience moving forward less lonely and less daunting.
“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.”
― Helen Keller
